New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees
Press Conference
Wednesday, December 28, 2011

What do you remember from that first Carolina game and do you see any differences in their team as well?
“The first time we played these guys it was a hard-fought game all-around. It obviously took 60 minutes to win that game. I remember them hitting some big plays. I remember us offensively doing some good things, but yet they got us a few times, so I don’t know. It’s just one of those hard-fought divisional games back and forth. They’re extremely explosive. They have a ton of playmakers, both offense and defense and I just think they’re a young, talented team, also with some great veteran presence. I remember initially when we played them early on they were a little banged up. They had lost two key starters defensively and so I think maybe they were kind of going through a little of that in trying to find their own with some new personnel. As I look at them now, they’ve won four of five and it seems like they’re playing extremely well. They’re rolling and playing with a lot of confidence, so they seem to be hitting their stride obviously at the end of the season, playing better each week and I like to think we’re in that position too. It should be a heck of a game.”

What do you think of what Cam Newton is doing?
“He’s an extremely impressive athlete. What he can do throwing the ball both in the pocket and outside the pocket on the run. You look at some of the stuff they do offensively with that read option and then he’s in the end zone going over the goal line pile. You’re just going “man this guy is a freak athlete.” He can do some pretty special stuff.”

How glad are you that you had the moment on Monday and now you concentrate on this week?
“The fact that we had that moment in week 15 and not week 16, we still have a game ahead of us, we broke it in about as dramatic fashion as we could and I think that made it extra special for everybody in the building and everybody that was part of that and the 50 million people watching at home, or however many it was. That was a great moment.”

Kittens will make a game of it, but the Saints should finish 5-1 in the division

What I remember was our D did not look good then. I really want to see our D take control of this game for the rest of the league to see that not only will they be facing the most lethal offense in the league but a defense that can strike fear on them. Our D has come a long way since the start of the season and there is no excuse for them to stop now, I still don't think they have peaked and it excites the he!! out of me.

This is true. Our D has "blossomed" of late and if they can hold this offense down to a fairly low score, our offense should take care of the rest.
